It could happen to You (J.v. Heusen + J. Burke) Solo-Arrangement for Vibraphone by Franz Bauer

During the Part of the Corona-Crisis, where almost everything seemed to stand still, i decided to work on Solo-Arrangements of 2 Jazz-Standards for Vibraphone. The first one is 'It could happen to you' as a medium Swing Piece and the second is 'Somewhere over the Rainbow', which i'll upoad soon after this. It was a great challenge to find 'Solo-Arranging' Ideas, especially when it comes to developing a reliable left hand, while the right hand or both hands go out for ideas or even just the melody.

Oliver Mayman Plays and Records Every Friedman Dampening and Pedaling Etude

Oliver Mayman is an incredible up and coming vibe player. I know this because I teach him.

I gave him the challenge of putting the whole Friedman - Dampening and Pedaling book online and he is doing it!

If you are studying the book then use his versions as a reference they are all here (or will be soon).

Choro in my apartment #2

Determined to continue my "Choro in my apartment" series in April, I began arranging another Pixinguinha classic "Segura Ele" for a host of great Brazilian musicians who happened to be scattered in far parts of the globe do to the shelter in place situation. It was fun and I learned a lot. Love this jam!
